This post is very overdue but I still wanted to sneak it in before tomorrow's story hour. Here's another edition of Toddler Tuesdays and Preschoolers Too!
This week it was all about trains. My son has loved trains and books about trains since he was two years old. This book has been one of his favorites. I'm surprised I hadn't thought to use it yet.
We all love Donald Crews books right? Great pictures and accessible text for young learners. This book also lends itself to discussion about colors and identifying colors. I wish I had a picture but all the kiddos took turns coming up and telling me the colors of the trains.
Then it time to sing our songs. I added two train songs... Down by the Station and I've Been Working on the Railroad.
I bought sponges at the grocery store and cut them in half.
The kids loved making their trains. For the wheels we let them choose to paint the wheels with a paintbrush or using one finger. My son chose to use his finger.
